Moss Lamps : Lighting the '50s, Hardback Book

Moss Lamps : Lighting the '50s Hardback


Once seen, never forgotten: that's a Moss lamp! Plexiglas bodies, spun glass shades, and spinning figurines were radiantly combined to transform humdrum 1950s home decor into something extraordinary.

Today, these marvels of modern design continue to spark the interest of collectors.

This book offers the first-ever, in-depth look at the Moss company and its shining array of lighting products.

It traces the Moss success story through exclusive interviews with family members and employees, 750 current and vintage product photos, and never-before-seen materials from the Moss archives.

Also included are a product index, price guide, and detailed information on the many collectible figurines that graced Moss lamps, from such noted design houses as Ceramic Arts Studio, deLee Art, Hedi Schoop, and Lefton.

An illuminating and lighthearted look at the lamps, it's ideal for anyone attracted to the fresh, fun side of brilliant '50s design!
